501(c)-3 Federal Tax Exempt Status Attained!

Hello All,

On September 12, 2011 we received notice from the IRS that our application for tax exempt status was approved! What that means for our donors is that any donations made to Las Vidas Mejoradas in the previous two years (from April 2009 to present) can be applied to your taxes when filing for 2011. If you cannot locate the statements that we’ve sent out over this period of time, please let us know and we will send a copy.

So what is in store for LVM now? Laurie plans to write to other small non-profits working in Peru to obtain grant proposals in the areas of health and environment. And over the next couple of board meetings in 2011 we will discuss what proposals we have received and make plans for a fundraiser.

Previously our projects were co-created working hand-in-hand with small communities and carried out with greater amounts of time (on our part) to do the work on the ground in Peru. Now with less time to be there ourselves, and less money, we look to forward to joining hands with other committed, viable small groups to continue our work together.

Thank you all for your continued support,
Laurie Iaccino and Steve Bouton
Las Vidas Mejoradas
